After using Destination Eurovision as their National Selection for the past two years, France are reverting back to an Internal Selection for the 65th Eurovision Song Contest in 2020.
Alexandra Redde-Amiel, the Head of Entertainment for France Televisions, had the following to say:
“We want to control the process more, with an internal selection. This is what Spain and England will do this year. We will deploy our forces differently. We are considering several possibilities. By changing our process, we hope to get closer to the podium in 2020.
We asked French writers and composers to submit songs, but also foreign editors, for the first time.”
